Hello Crafty Friends! It's Conny here with the Hometown USA collection. Today, I created a two-page layout for the 8"x8" Storybook Album. I wanted to start filling this album with memories. While 8"x8" is not my usual size, I wanted to give it a try, and I think I loved this process.  
I started by cutting two 8"x8" papers in the colors red and white from coordinating textured cardstock pack. Then I cut two pieces measuring 7.5" x 6" from the Plaid to be American paper. I also cut another red piece of cardstock measuring 4" x 7.5". For the photo bases, I used 3"x4" pieces of white cardstock matted on the fireworks side of the Plaid to be American paper. I matted the white cards, leaving a 1/4" inch around the white mat. 

On the first page with the red background, I added the 7.5" x 6" piece of Plaid to be American paper at the bottom, leaving about an inch at the top. Then, I laid the piece of cardstock measuring 4" x 7.5", leaving about an inch at the top and bottom of the plaid. After that, I added a scallop strip from the This & That Sticker Sheet along the red cardstock.
I added the "Fireworks" and "July" from the Chit Chat pieces at the top using foam adhesive for dimension and some fireworks from the Odds & Ends around the title. At the bottom, I added two 3"x4" cards, one for a photo and the other for a 3"x4" journaling card. On the second page with the white background, I added the Plaid to be American paper measuring 7.5" x 6" on the right side, leaving space for the chit chat "Summer" on foam adhesive for dimension. Then I added the 3"x4" journaling card, matted the 3"x4" cards, and embellished them with mini icons and icons cardstock stickers. I also added a few chit-chat phrases like "Family Picnic" and "Memories." If you haven't tried these 8"x8" pages, I recommend them. I can't wait to add my new photo for the 4th of July. See you all soon with a mini album using HomeTown USA. Love, Conn
